Paint me a floral song
use the wind as your brush
flow harmony’s pastels
rhyming colors so plush

Bend soft magical hues
over canvas pristine
let rise to the heavens
wondrous sound that is seen

Sing me a flower’s soul
use sunlight as your voice
a melody smiling
verses that shine by choice

May notes be as whispers
from each pedal to feel
add texture as rhythm
tickling ears with appeal

Blending of the senses
as sound and sight belong
so I’m humbling asking
paint me a floral song
